Trying to get motivated

Postby Yahya » Tue Jun 19, 2012 4:38 pm

Hello all,

I've been trying to get motivated to finish the Sand Wars scenarios lately, but I am in a sort of George Lucas mode: it's been a few years, and all my old props are in such disrepair that I basically have to start from scratch to get a new episode in the can.

It was about two summers ago that I accidentally lost all my source files for the original scenarios, and I've since gone back to school and am finishing up a bachelor's degree as I write this.

But the loss of all that data really put a hurting on me, because I don't even have my original images for my pretty logos, so I'll have to design those all again from scratch. Bummer. Kind of like Grant Imahara (of Mythbusters fame) when he had to essentially rebuild R2-D2 anew. Granted, his task must have been much more difficult.

Adding insult to injury is the removal of all our posted files from these forums, so I can't even get my original scenarios. Another bummer.

That's just one kick in the groin too many, but I really want to tell the rest of that story.

We'll see when I finish it, but I hope to put them together by the end of the year. Of course, I'll be starting a master's degree in September, so it could be tough. :)

I'd look at this as a chance to make something better, prettier, more fun than before. I mean, if you can't get the old back then improve on your memory and make something more suited to an updated you. Something that will reflect who you are now instead of what you were two years ago, :)

Hopefully I haven't offended

:D

You're right about that, Amrine.

I made the first scenario in August 2007, and the second in January 2008. Then the third in January 2009, so it's been quite some time now.

Yes, I would love those if you want to get them to me somehow, Janmar. I'd really appreciate that. :)

Yahya! Always loved your scenarios. Great to see you back! I have been busy for a while but now I'm looking at working on a new scenario. :)

Thanks, Elizabethus!

Do you have my old scenarios? I don't have copies of them due to a crash.

Hello Yahya,
Yes I have SandWars 1 and 2 and also A New Nubia.
Would it be best if I uploaded them to Heaven Games so that you could download them?
Just let me know what you think I should do.

I have just uploaded your 3 scenarios to Heaven so hopefully they should be ok for you to download. I think it takes about 12-24 hours before they are available.
Good luck. :)

Thanks. You are the best!

Unfortunately, though I'd love to go and download them, I can't get to the HG site. Sends me to Google for a login, for some reason. It was fine yesterday...

Now I just need Fury of the Righteous. (I love that title - :D )
